A pair of phoenixes have winged their way to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City. Weighing in

Why not combine the best of both worlds and take a trip to a beach resort in Phuket, Thailand. There you can relax on beautiful sandy beaches beneath idyllic palm trees. And get a nice, calming massage by -- an elephant? Yep, that's right. You can get a massage from an elephant.
